The Highwaymen - Welfare Line

D
Well now, boys I've been to Bethlehem
                          G
Rode there on a big steam train
                        D
Lost two fingers in the steel wheels
                  A    D
And I ain't goin' back again.

D
I fought for my country
                    G
Lord knows I did my best
                    D
Crawlin' cross some foreign field
              A            D
They pinned a ribbon to my chest.

Chorus:
   G
So pass around the bottle boys 
                     D
Let's talk about old times
Night's rollin' in, it's cold as sin
A                   D
Here on the Welfare Line.

D
Served on a Georgia road gang
                         G
Couldn't pay the debts I owed
                      D
Cause I ain't made of silver
                 A       D
And I ain't ever seen no gold.

D
I still remember Rachel 
                 G
Soft as a velvet gown
                   D
They laid her in a pauper's grave
             A       D
On the other side of town.

Chorus:

D G D A D

    D
Now some folks are born to money
                    G
You know I wish 'em well
  
                         D
If the Devil should ever want my soul
            A     D
I swear I'd never sell.

Chorus:
